A reportedly intoxicated transient walking in the street in East Hollywood jumped off a 101 Freeway overpass and died while being chased by officers, Los Angeles police said.

The transient was walking in traffic on Santa Monica Boulevard when two officers began chasing him, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

It was not immediately clear if the man was killed by the fall off the Santa Monica Boulevard overpass onto the 101 Freeway or by being struck by a vehicle, police said.

The fall temporarily shut down all southbound lanes and backed up traffic for miles.

There was a significant backup starting near the Santa Monica Boulevard overpass.

This is a developing story. Please check back for updates.
